Why Preventive Maintenance is So Important
There are two types of maintenance strategies employed by companies that rely on equipment reactive maintenance and preventive maintenance. Reactive maintenance goes by the "if it isn't broke, don't fix it" motto, a strategy that can sometimes save money short term but often ends up costing even more in the long run. Preventive maintenance, on the other hand, is a carefully designed maintenance program where maintenance tasks are performed routinely in order to avoid larger, costly down time.
7 reasons why preventive maintenance is a much better alternative to reactive maintenance.
A preventive maintenance plan can save a company money because efforts will be focused on preventing equipment failure rather than responding to emergencies. . Unplanned downtime can result in idle employees, halting the production line, missed deadlines, and – for property managers of hotels, resorts, school campuses and other consumer facing industries – long-term damage to their brand.
When equipment isn't working in optimal condition, it creates many hazards, unsafe working conditions and even emergency situations where workers are injured. Preventive maintenance improves the safety of equipment and therefore the safety of company workers resulting in fewer on the job injuries and accidents.
Increased Equipment Efficiency
Preventive maintenance can help equipment to run much more efficiently. In turn, a company will benefit from unexpected down time & energy savings because equipment will be running at peak performance.
Decreased Equipment Downtime
While almost all maintenance tasks require some equipment downtime, a preventive maintenance program can decrease and optimize that downtime.Decreasing equipment downtime is a benefit that saves time in maintenance and day-to-day operations.
Preventive maintenance can also help a company to be a more reliable business partner. Customers can count on a company to deliver products, materials, or service on time, without unnecessary delays. By always offering a reliable product or service, a company can enhance its customer service and improve its reputation.
Conservation of Assets
Most equipment these days is certainly not cheap, but the better a company cares for its equipment, the longer it will last. Preventive maintenance will prolong the life of equipment so a company can get more hours out the equipment, resulting in reduced costs and increased profit.
Preventive maintenance is the best option for companies that want to succeed long term, and therefore understand that they need a long term plan for proper equipment upkeep.
